Maggie Delaney (second from right) - with friends - shows off her now famous picture of the planet Pluto which she captured during the Science & Innovation ‘Space Camp’ programme in the Tower Museum, organised by the legacy department at Derry City and Strabane District Council.

Maggie’s work caught the attention of former Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield.

The first Canadian to walk in space, Hadfield captured the imagination of the world with his updates of life on board the International Space Station and his spectacular pictures of the earth from space.

He tweeted that Maggie’s Space Camp picture ‘inspired him’, after her proud mum posted her drawing on Twitter during the week.
